Kratom is a leaf crop similar to cannabis in its produce properties. Thai Traditional Medicine has used kratom for many generations to heal a number of ailments and maladies.
Kratom was legalized and decriminalized in August 2021 allowing for personal use and commercial trade. Thailand’s government, FDA, and ONCB fully support the development of kratom as a commercial crop for farmers and international products following 19 years of animal tests and 15 years of human testing.
Thailand has some of the world’s most sought-after kratom leaves. Indonesia is one of the biggest exporters of Kratom in the world with some 5,000 tonnes a month cited as the monthly imports for the USA alone.
Thailand is rapidly developing its kratom cultivation and food handling standards to move into this market space in much the same way as it is moving into the cannabis and industrial hemp global market space. TCC is at the forefront off this market and cultivation development as you may well expect.
